GRIND ZERO was born in late 2011, when long-time friends Alex Colombo and Udo Usvardi decided to start a new project playing the music they liked most, the music they grew up with, the music with old-school attitude.
In Jan. 2012 Mr.D. (aka Dhilorz of Ancient) joined as guitarist speeding up the writing process and filling GZ’s riffing with his influences.
Alessandro “Rullo” Durini (drums) and Marco Piras (vocals) teamed up with GZ shortley after to complete the line up.
Spring 2012 was finally time to bring the band on stage, so at the end of April 2012 GRIND ZERO supported Entombed during their italian show and shortly after they shared the stage with the Norwegian acts Diskord and Execration and played several more shows with other underground bands around the north of Italy.
With 9 songs ready, GRIND ZERO entered the studio and started the recording of their debut album, ready to unleash the GRIND ZERO sound.
The promo “Forceful Displacement” was released on April 2013 when GZ had the chance to support thrash-metal gods Possessed at their italian gig.
The promo contains 3 of the 9 songs recorded.
At the end of the year the 1st album “Mass Distraction” was finalized at Red Pigeon Studios and produced by Alex Colombo.
On May 2014 GRIND ZERO have become part of the Mighty Music roster! Their first album “Mass Distraction” has been released on the 14th of July 2014. Get it!
In April 2015 Alessandro Durini has been replaced by Matteo Amighetti on the drums.
During the 2016 GRIND ZERO have played lot of gigs around Italy. During the month of July, they took part to the 6th edition Hellbrigade Festival supporting Incantation and Dead Congregation.
In December 2016 Matteo Amighetti has been replaced by Emanuele Prandoni as our new session drummer.
GRIND ZERO are now finalizing new material for an upcoming album: the new songs should be recorded at the beginning of 2017. Stay tuned!
